 Bears might want to start looking for another backup QB. Daniels sucks. Errant passes,no mobility. Pray Trubisky stays healthy.

Backup OL is pretty bad vs Ravens back up dl.  Irving has been around the Ravens qb all night.

Wims was the guy I was touting before the draft.  Not sure why he slipped to 7th round, many had him tabbed a 4th rounder.  If he continues to perform, hard to stash him on PS, and not sure what his value will be on special teams.

The one against the Bears in the end zone I did not understand.  The defender did not lower his head and he hit the receiver with his shoulder to the chest and facemask on his arm first.  I thought it had to be lower the head and hit with the crown of the helmet.  I hope the Refs are still learning that as well in preseason and they learn that should not have been called on that play.  If it was correct and that is the intent of the rule they might as well put flags on everyone.

FWIW

1.  New helmet rule stinks... badly. None of those "Personal Fouls" should have been called......
1B. New kickoff rule so far is "meh".

2. Fowler III we barely knew ye..... and won't from here on out....See ya....

3. D didn't look too bad. Secondary was usually in the right place. LBs were up and down. Not too worried (yet).

4. Tyler Bray is 6'6"" of horrible QB. If he were 6'3" or less he wouldn't be on any team. He's better than Glennon was, but that's a very low hanging fruit.......

5. Javon Wims seems quite good.. gets open and catches that oblong brown thing very well even on badly placed throws....

6. Think they are OK on RB depth.

7. Football is back ! At least it was a game of sorts..... :D


Go BEARS !

I tried to focus on offensive and defensive line.

Defensively, Roy Robertston-Harris and Jonathon Bullard each had sacks and were active but they don't hold the point of attack as well as the departed Unrein.  Rookie Bilal Nichols also had a sack.  So I think the DE position is in good shape along with Akiem Hicks.  Backup NT John Jenkins looks like he lost a few pounds and made a nice hustle downfield tackle. 

Super impressed with Isaiah Irving.  Nice speed and bend on the pass rushes.  And Kylie Fitts was almost as good pass rushing but better against the run.  I liked the draft pick at the time and now I really like the draft pick.  We'll see how they do against better competition as we progress through the PS.

Offensively, Jordan Morgan struggled from the get-go.  He's basically a rookie but he looks like a project (read practice squad).  Rashard Coward who just converted from d-line to RT was raw but I thought did OK considering.   Bradley Sowell's play makes me value Charles Leno even more.  Watford could make the team as a backup.  But I don't think I saw Grasu or Daniels out there...maybe I wasn't paying as much attention in the 2nd half?

Grizzly's guy Wims looks like he has a good chance to make the team.  The announcers said he wasn't a speed guy but he ran a respectable 4.53 and has length and can track the ball.   Ayers looked much faster than his 4.7 combine times - but that time was from a couple years ago when he was a rookie.

Chase Daniels makes Mark Sanchez look good.

I was a little disappointed in Bullard and Robertson -Harris considering they were up against the bottom of the Ravens roster.

Bilal Nichols looks like he has a burst that will give them competition.

Wims vs Tanner Gentry, the result was pretty clear. 

HMMM, backup guards and left tackles wasn't looking very promising.

Shaheen played but all the passes to him were ten yards up the field, stop and turn around.  Ravens jumped that several times.

Didn't see the LSu corner that they say has been so good in camp.

I thought Fitts looked slow.  He had a hard time with that big right tackle.  Will have to see more of him next Thursday.
